Target Delivery — Thank you!

Special thanks goes out to the 25 volunteers (17 adults and 8 kids) that made our target unloading on 9/10/23 a huge success. With great help we were able to offload, distribute and stock the trap, skeet and sporting
clays with 22 pallets of targets, in a record time of 2 hours. The kids did the heavy lifting by stocking the skeet high houses!

Also special thanks to our hauler, Wild West Express and our forklift provider, SunBelt Rentals. These companies have aided in our success for several years.
